The Yamaha YZF R125 is the Japanese manufacturer’s most affordable motorcycle in U.K and is in the market for quite some time now. With Yamaha moving on to a completely different design language, which was most recently seen on the R15 V3 and R6, the R125 is also expected to receive similar treatment soon. However, at the present no word on such a facelift is provided by the manufacturer.

Yamaha seems to be reluctant to let go of their existing R125 mostly because it looks so good. Unlike the R15 which is available in Asian markets, the R125 is much closer to the last generation R6 and people love it.
The motorcycle gets twin headlamp set-up at the front and has an aggressive seating position. Between the headlamps is a working air intake system.
